The Red King And The Mouth by NyxenAvenger The Red King And The Mouth by NyxenAvenger
"Huhuhu, I'm but a simple jester looking to make her way in the world, alongside this hunky bastard!" -Geg, the Mouth

No one is as revered and feared in the land of Hememnith as Rhyfelwr, The Red King, First of the Undying. Back in his day, the land of Hememnith was split into three, and were ruled by the tribes of the past, each accursed and wretched in their own way. He raised a massive army by his own and conquered the lands to form his own kingdom, and thus the land of Hememnith was born, named after his birth name.

He was a stern, but just king, many people were killed on his watch but there was order in the land for once. But he longed for immortality, so that he could keep watch over his kingdom for order was what he strived for. He contacted the ancestor witches and through them communed with a Wise One, the bloated being known as Shor'akatar, she granted him the ability to live forever out of sympathy, but although he was immortal his body was not, and slowly it started to rot away until he was but a husk of his former self. Not only that, but this affliction of his spread to other humans, thus creating the first undead.

Now he sits on his throne, ever watching over the kingdom as he so wanted to.

----

Most kings in their courts have a court jester to keep them and their guests entertained, but the one Rhyfelwr has is of a much darker nature than others.

Geg, the Mouth, is clearly not from this world. Some say she appeared shortly after the King communed with Shor'akatar and somehow gained a prominent position in the king's court. She acts as jester and an advisor, and speaks for the king, for he cannot speak. Many rumours float around the land about Geg, some say she can devour men whole, some say those that cross her get turned to the ugliest of furniture, few say that she is the spawn of Shor'akatar, and is only there to extend her influence.

But they are but mere rumours peddled around by the commoners, for instance there is the rumour that she can change her physique in a mere manner of seconds, fuelled by all the life she has consumed, which is completely absurd. But what is true is that she is deeply interested in elves of fair age, deeply...deeply interested.

More Hememnith characters central to the world, the King and his Mouth! Really chuffed at how this turned out, especially with the king. Expect Geg to appear more, as there's a lot of cool ideas I want to do with her. :>

Enjoy!
